2013 Domaine Cacheux Les SuchotsPinot Noir Burgundy Vosne-Romanee
Les Suchots" (Lay SOO-show) refers to a plot of land that has been cleared of forest but still contains "little stumps," or souches. It's a vineyard in Vosne-Romanée, which is home to the greatest Pinots Noirs in the world, let alone France. "Suchots" abuts both the Grands Crus of Richebourg and Romanée-Saint-Vivant, two of the greatest Pinot Noir sites in the world. This wine is redolent of ripe red plums, sandalwood, morello cherries, and a faint gamy note. "
